Welcome to the Department of the Pacific Federal Battalion
UPCOMING CLUB EVENTS
The mission of the Department of the Pacific, Federal Battalion is to authentically portray an American Civil War Union Army unit, while returning dignity and FUN to the reenacting community. While also educating and sharing history with our fellow citizens about the events surrounding the American Civil War.
The Department of the Pacific Federal Battalion is a private, non-profit, educational organization in Pacific Coast States that uses Living History as means of helping the public gain a better understanding of the American Civil War and how it help shape the country we live in today. The Department of the Pacific Federal Battalion is affiliated with the Nevada Civil War Volunteers.
Here one has the opportunity to recreate portions of the past in ways that help the spectator and participant alike to discover and learn more about their history and the people who lived it. Folks from all walks of life participate in the DPFB. The reenactors don authentically reproduced clothing and uniforms, shoulder period muskets, cook over open fires, sleep in canvas tents and participate in battle reenactments and civilian life. Some even speak in the dialect of the era - we call it Living History.
The American Civil War, fought from 1861-1865, is a pivotal moment in the history of the United States. With a flash of the Officer's sword, followed by the command "Attention Company", you begin your journey back in time and experience life as a soldier of the American Civil War.
The DPFB is comprised of Union forces, including infantry, cavalry and artillery. The Union Units are recreations of actual regiments and companies that fought in the American Civil War.
